The Harem (No. 102) - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning of the episode a Cadillac Escalade gets stolen. The car is the newest model. The chase begins and the car is a new model right up to a scene when they crash into some other cars. That part was filmed with older model Cadillac. The damage is quite severe, but the chase continues again with the new model that has only one bit of damage - a mirror that has come apart.

Under the Dome picture

Curtains - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Near the start, the camera pans out to see the dome now covered in a layer of black. Outside of the dome you can see nice green fields, a small forest area, little houses and everything looks rosy. However a few episodes back the military launched a MOAB (mother of all bombs) and and the surrounding area was wiped out completely. (00:05:50)

Suggested correction: The entire left side of the dome is where the bomb blew up. Now if you watch back when the bomb hit the dome, picture the lake being to the north on the map. When Joe and Norrie were looking for Ange, and they were on the bench when the bomb hit, SW in the scene is a pretty close point to when they show the aerial shots of the dome.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In Season 1, Episode 5, we see the MI5 agents report Sam and Phil's identities to the Director. With the ID cards on screen, they state Sam as being 29, with a date of birth 25/03/1983. The series was released in 2013, so this age fits with the show's production dates of late-2012 or early-2013. However, Phil's age is described as 31 (but DOB is visible as 11/09/1985 - which would make him 26 or 27). Phil's age is detailed as 31 elsewhere in the series. (00:01:25)

Chapter 39 - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In one scene, Claire Underwood is returning to the White House from Iowa. In the hallway leading to her bedroom's stairs, she is followed by a black female Secret Service agent, obviously part of her entourage, who stops to stand guard at the beginning of the stairs. In another scene 30 minutes later, that same agent is seen standing guard at the entry of the campaigning house in which Frank Underwood is going to say his victory speech. But Claire has not flown from Washington to Iowa, so the agent should not be there. (00:15:15 - 00:45:30)
